Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)

This is a solid movie. After his wife's death, King Magnus marries the beautiful Ravenna (Charlize Theron) after rescuing her from the Dark Army, an invading force of glass soldiers. Ravenna, who is in fact a powerful sorceress and the Dark Army's master, kills Magnus on their wedding night. Snow White is then locked away in the north tower of the castle. Ravenna periodically drains the youth from young women. When Snow White (Kristen Stewart) reaches maturity, the Magic Mirror tells the Queen that she can achieve permanent youth and immortality by extracting the young woman's heart.

The Dwarves were played by actors who had their faces digitally transmuted onto small bodies. The beach scenes were predominantly filmed in Pembrokeshire, Wales, on the Marloes Sands beach near the village of Marloes. A computer-generated castle was set on nearby Gateholm island.
